How to use all-purpose glue
Always keep safety in mind. Wear gloves, wash your hands, protect your work area, and use your general-purpose glue in a well-ventilated area.
Prepare your surfaces. The surfaces you want to bond must be sound, dry, and clean. Remove any residue and contaminants with a solvent like alcohol or acetone after you have tested the solvent’s compatibility with your substrate. Lightly sand any glossy or very smooth surfaces to improve adhesion. If necessary, mask off adjacent areas with tape before applying glue. If you are bonding two non-porous surfaces, you may need to dampen them slightly before applying universal adhesive.
Pre-fit. Pre-fit all materials before applying your all-purpose glue to make sure your pieces align properly.
